KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - University of Tennessee officials say a candidate for Knox County property assessor knew his transcript did not exist.

University spokeswoman Karen Simsen tells The Knoxville News-Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1PIazRP) that despite the fact that Andrew Graybeal on Monday at a Halls Republican Club meeting held up what he said was a confirmation letter that he had ordered his transcript, Graybeal had already been notified online four days prior that the request transcript did not exist.

Graybeal’s attorney, Keith Stewart, says his client never received an email notifying him that the university couldn’t complete his transcript order.

Graybeal has said he transferred to the University of Tennessee and then graduated in 1993 with a bachelor’s of applied sciences in electronics engineering technology degree.

University officials say they have no record that Graybeal ever was enrolled at the school.
